Today is Thanksgiving! I love everything about it. The turkey, friends, family, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade especially. It kicks off the holiday season spectacularly and I have so much to be thankful for this year.

As the time of Thanksgiving approaches people begin to talk about gratitude and what they are thankful for. I ask myself the same question as well.
I am thankful for my mom, my friends, the job I have been blessed with, good health, a quick mind and all the blessings that I have received this year.

I read this quote on the blog Adventures in Argyle and I love it! So, thanks for the quote Argyle and here it is: "You just have to adjust your expectations for the great recession of 2007-2009. Down is the new flat, flat is the new up, and up is the new best day ever". So true.

THE ROAD NOT TAKENTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

What a month. I have not posted as much as I would like. I have been incredibly busy with school and work. The typical whirlwind. I am trying to catch up on everything, life, cleaning, chores, paperwork, bills you name it and it has disorganization on it. I also have the holidays looking at me in my face so I have to get organized for that as well.

Simplify your life. Get rid of anything that’s pulling at your energy, time, or finances-especially anything that pulls you away from your life purpose” Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

This weekend I went to my church's annual thanksgiving dinner. There was about 500 people there.
